TOOL picture
Formed around 1990 in Los Angeles, California, United States, Tool is a band that is most noted for combining hard rock with a wide variety of progressive structures, irregular time signatures and lyrics that range from angry diatribes to meditations on philosophical and social matters.

After performing a handful of shows in the Los Angeles area and up the West Coast, they toured in the United States with Rollins Band in the summer of 1992 in support of their EP Opiate. Their first full length recording, Undertow, was released in 1993.

Emerging with a groovy heavy metal sound on their first release, when the genre was dominated by thrash metal, they were later seen at the top of the alternative metal movement with the release of their second full-length studio album Ænima in 1996, the first recording the band made after original bassist Paul d'Amour left the band to

TOOL Reviews

TOOL 10,000 Days

Album · 2006 · Progressive Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
The only psychodramatic occult concept album to include a repeated refrain about shitting the bed, Tool's 10,000 Days finds the band travelling further down the increasingly progressive trajectory suggested by Aenima and especially Lateralus. The evolution in the band's sound is a bit more gentle than the quantum leap between Undertow and Aenima, or even the jump from Aenima to Lateralus, but the album should be pleasing to anyone who's fond of Tool's progressive direction - though if you were more intrigued by the alternative metal style of Undertow (or the alternative-progressive fusion of Aenima) you're not going to see a return to that here.

TOOL Lateralus

Earendil
Lateralus is the greatest rock/metal album ever recorded. It's transcendently beautiful and challenging in a myriad of facets varying in profundity. Musically, it's incredibly tight and focussed. Maynard's voice is full of emotion and strength and each band member shows incredible precision with their respective instruments. According to the band (especially Danny Carey, the drummer), sacred geometry played a prominent role in the musical structure of the album; each rhythm or riff is charged with its own meaning. Content-wise, Lateralus dares to reach a level that few albums can touch. A level that few works of any type of art reach. I can only say that for introspection, Lateralus provides a narrative of incredible scope to guide the listener. Lateralus guides the listener through issues ranging from frustration with dogma and ignorance, to confronting despair and emptiness, and, as the album progresses, ever deeper levels of enlightenment. This is one of the most encouraging, overwhelmingly powerful works of art that I've had the privilege of experiencing. After what must be several hundred listens, I can say with confidence that Lateralus is a masterpiece in a league of its own.

Rating: 10/10



Here's an extremely well-done video that reveals some of the underlying structure to Tool's music, which is not immediately apparent.

The Patient holds a Grudge against Ticks & Leeches

The days when I was a die-hard Tool fan are long gone but the fact LATERALUS was a groundbreaking release is as valid as ever. Many consider it to be their opus magnum but the truth is Tool haven't done much to change that. Nothing has been released since 2006 and there's no sign of that changing any time soon. Hence, an obvious question to ask would be "how did LATERALUS stand the test of time?"

I'd say it has passed it with flying colours. LATERALUS is loaded with compelling melodies, ascetic, hypnotizing rhythm patterns and evocative atmosphere but emotional charge - ambiguous, weaved in a kaleidoscope of meanings and symbols - is what makes it timeless. Music-wise, the third album from Tool is very eclectic, but unlike many modern prog metal records, it's not a coarse collage of genres. The guys were mixing psychedelia, alternative rock of the 90s and progressive rock of the 70s together until it became a smooth dough of unique flavour. Structure-wise, LATERALUS features innovative character of rhythm section with prominent bass and eclectic drumming, evolutionary structure of tracks and clever polyrhythms. It drags out a bit towards the end ("Triad" is booooring!) but this is the only blemish on the album.

I regret that the title of this review is a lousy pun, but I hope the point I was trying to make throughout it is clear. LATERALUS needs no recommendation and all fans of modern prog, alternative and post metal have already given it a spin. A flawed masterpiece it is. Check it out or die. Amen.

TOOL Opiate

alice-in-chains4lyfe
Out of all the albums in Tool's glorious catalog, this one ranks as the least Progressive, with this 7 song EP leaning more towards Alternative metal, some song's even cross over into funk metal (Hush) and grunge (The title track). The album makes up for the lack of progressiveness with heaviness, with Opiate featuring some of Tool's heaviest, most aggressive songs to date.

Paul D'Amour is in my opinion very underrated and a much better bassist then the overrated Justin Chancellor. On this album you can hear Paul's great, sometimes sort of funky basslines. The lyrics (usually one of Tool's strongest points) are a little weak on this album, with songs such as "Hush" and "Sweat" featuring some of Tool's most repetitive, immature lyrics to date (at least when compared to their later stuff).

If you are a fan of Grunge, Alternative rock or Nu metal and you're new to Tool then i would recommend either this album or Undertow, however if you are more of a Progressive rock/Heavy metal fan and you're new to Tool then i would recommend either Ænima or Lateralus.

TOOL Opiate

Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
AtomicCrimsonRush
A beginning for Tool?

"Opiate" is the first Tool release and is a fair EP that got them into the music scene where they would eventually make an indelible impact. This is not prog metal as they would become but still rocks hard, and features wonderful riffing from Adam Jones and Maynard Keenan's inimitable vocal style. The tracks are far shorter and concise than they would release on subsequent albums, and sound more like alternative nu- metal than the complex musicians they would develop into. The songs are exuberant and exciting showing a band in their development stage, that were aggressive, darkly innovative, and wanted to conquer.

They would have to wait till "Aenima" to make a significant impact but this EP is rather endearing. 'Hush' and 'Part of Me' are heavy and have the signature Tool sound. The live tracks are intriguing showing an early immature Tool, and have some amusing introductions especially on 'Jerk-Off', one of the better tracks.

The longest track is the 8:28 minute 'Opiate/ The Gaping Lotus Experience', that musically is excellent but I feel offended by the lyrical content, especially the ghost track. Overall an EP showcasing the beginning of Tool, who would develop into one of the most inspirational bands over the next 8 years.

Many descriptions and reviews on the internet are misleading about the content of this Vicarious DVD, and for that reason I didn't purchase it until recently. What a mistake to wait! This DVD is essential for any Tool fan and an excellent find for anyone who likes the surreal, psychedelic, and strange. The main feature of the DVD is the Vicarious short film, which is Tool's first completely CGI video. Adam Jones and Alex Grey are the two main artists behind the video, and it's a really cool experience to see their ideas merge. Anyways here are the full DVD contents:

1. Vicarious music video (9 minutes)

2. 2 overdubs of the music video with actor/comedian David Cross making hilarious commentary (18 minutes)

3. Vicarious documentary (40 minutes)

4. Footage of the storyboards from Alex Grey and Adam Jones (1 minute)

5. Footage of Alex's art gallery COSM and him talking about it (4 minutes)

Rating: 8/10

Why are Flood and Disgustipated the same track on the "Undertow" tracklist?
